Where can I buy marbled rye bread?

The only place I've had it is at The New Deli sandwich shop in Pinole. They get it from their supplier, but didn't know their source.

Much obliged in advance!

  1. It's available at House of Bagels on Geary Blvd

    1. My guess is that New Deli gets their marble rye from the same place as Tina's (formerly Creekside) Cafe ... Whole Grain Natural Bread Co of Santa Cruz. You might give them a call and see if they sell to any local markets (831) 423-9242

      Since you seem to get on the otherside of the SR bridge, you might call Max's in Corte Madera. (415) 924-6297 At one time they sold to Mollie Stone, but I haven't noticed it recently.

      This doesn't seem to be in your migration path, but Model Bakery in Napa and ... the other city up north ... makes a marble rye that I keep meaning to try.

      I like marble rye. In a pinch the stuff in supermarkets like Raleys will do. There's junk in it though ... some company like Orowheat, but I don't think that is the correct brand ... some company like that.

        Thanks RW, you are a godsend. I called Whole Grain and they distribute to Andronico's, Whole Foods and both Berkeley Bowl stores. Both BB East and West carry they marble rye. Also called Max's but they only carry the seeded rye variety.

        Great tip on Model Bakery in Napa and St. Helena. I'll have an opportunity next month to visit up there. I'm planning a wine trip for a friend visiting from NZ and want to reciprocate after he took us around the Martinborough region a few months ago.

      2. The San Francisco Arizmendi on 9th Ave has marbled (as well as plain and currant) pumpernickel bread on Thursdays.

          The only problem with Arizmendi is that they don't slice bread.
